    Default Tator's Dodge

    I hope this is OK to ask on the forums , (Admin - if not please feel free to delete this post) but after reading dozens of threads, everywhere I see comments on saving/having saved Tators Dodge. What is up with Tator's Dodge?

    Just wondering as I feel left out of the loop.

    Thanks!

    Robert

    Okay, that explains that he got his dealership back, but what caused the problem in the first place...I've been wondering the same since I joined.

    theres a "5 star" Dodge dealership here locally that SHOULD be shut down. There the absolute WORST dealership I've EVER been to in my entire life. Myself and others I know have taken vehicles to them numerous times and they ALWAYS have trouble fixing any of the problems. There a total joke.

    Wow! As a former Chrysler stockholder (my family used to build them in Detroit and we were proud stockholders until they went private again - now I'm stuck with DCX) I'm shocked that they would treat someone who is such a major part of their flagship car like this!

    Chuck, keep up the good work and I'll call you if I need anything. I'm glad the Viper community can rally around such an important person like this!

    If I may revive an old thread... Hey Chuck - since your Grandfather started the business in 1914 and your father took over in 1953, I have one important question...


    ...Do you have any children?

    And that being asked, what are you plans for Tator Dodge's 100th Anniversary? That might be one to travel North for...

    Reading through this thread again reminds me of how much I have learnt in the last year or so.

    Did not even know who Chuck-y was at time of original post!

    I do now.
